CERTIFICATION

The NICEIC's Approved Contractor scheme is designed to maintain and publish a register of electrical contractors that have been assessed against a specific set of competency requirements, in particular the national electricity safety standard BS 7671 commonly known as the 'Wiring Regulations'.This register of contractors was formally known as  'The roll of approved contractors' and is operated by the NICEIC under license from the 'Electrical Safety Council'. The aim of the roll is to promote the use of competent persons and provide users of contracting services with a single source directory of competent contractors.

Registered contractors will work to the UK national standard  BS 7671 and will issue the appropriate certificate covering their work to confirm that the installation has been designed,constructed and inspected and tested in accordance with this standard.

The NICEIC Approved contractor scheme is accredited by the united kingdom accreditation service (UKAS) to EN 45011- General requirements for bodies operating product certification systems, accreditation ensures that the scheme is operated with independence and integrity and that it focuses on the quality and safety of the final installation.

The following NICEIC certificates are provided on completion of works:

  DVN3DOMESTIC VISUAL CONDITION REPORT DVN4

A domestic visual condition report can also be carried out to determine as far as is reasonably practicable wether an electrical installation has suffered any damage or deterioration or has any visually evident defects which affect or may affect safety.

If you intend to rent or sell your property you may need an EICR IPN4 - most letting and estate agents require one, as do potential buyers, to satisfy themselves that the property is electrically safe. The time period covered by an EICR can vary depending on the findings of the visual inspection and test results.

If you have an existing circuit altered or extended you will need a Minor electrical works certificate IMN4; if a new circuit is installed you will need an Electrical Installation certificate ICN4, this certificate also applies to replacement of an existing fusebox/consumer unit usually preceded by an EICR for the property.

All NICEIC certificates are individually numbered and issued to a specific contractor, so each job requiring certification has its own unique number, the original is left with the customer and the issuing contractor retains the copy. If the work falls within the scope of Part P of the Building Regulations the certificate number, address and scope of works completed is submitted electronically to the relevant building control office via the NICEIC (BRCS) Building regulations certification scheme.

All electrical installation work including new circuits or additions or alterations to existing circuits must comply with the 17th edition of the IET wiring regulations BS 7671 as amended, however the 17th edition is not retrospective and only applies to these new circuits or any circuits worked on which must become compliant.Main bonding conductors to the Gas and Water services must be either upgraded if undersized or installed if not present, special locations such as bath or shower rooms and any circuits feeding equipment outdoors also needs to brought into line and become 17th edition compliant
